This seems to be somewhat chick-lit-y but in it the main character competes in the Olympics. And with the London games only a few weeks away, it seems like the perfect time to read it.
Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon
I've never read any of Gabaldon's books, but I do have the first book in her Outlander series sitting by my bed to read. Although I'm realizing now this is a spin off of the Outlander books, so I might read those before picking up this one.
One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
I've heard nothing by great things about the Stephanie Plum books, and now I finally have the chance to read the first in the series.
Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati
I knew nothing about this book, but it's hard for me to say no to any type of historical fiction. This one takes place in New York in the late 1700s.
Masie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear
This is another series I've heard nothing but great things about, but I've haven't had the chance to read before.
Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
This is actually mentioned in my favorite book series, The Betsy-Tacy Series. This is the romance novel that Tacy's father finds her reading and burns it in the stove since it isn't the type of book a young lady should be reading. After hearing about the book through multiple re-readings, I'm excited to see if it's as risque now as it was 100 years ago.
Digging to America by Anne Tyler
This was a compemtory novel that caught my eye about a family adopting a baby girl from Korea.
Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
I recently read my first Picoult book and wound up being a fan, so I can't wait to read more of her books.
The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland
This is another historical fiction that called out to me about an Italian painter.
The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer
I've heard great things about Heyer, but I've yet to read any of her books. So here's my chance!
I know there's a good amount of books here, but I had to stop myself because I could have easily found more. What's in your mailbox this week? Did you wind up with any good deals as well?
